The Southern Breakwater lies north of Liepāja’s central beach and is crucial in protecting the Port of Liepāja. To get to it, it is best to go on a leisurely walk along the beach. Car parking is available in the parking lot on Kūrmājas Prospekts or at the end of Roņu Street.
The Southern Breakwater is more than 700 metres long of which about 200 metres are level enough for easy walking. Beyond that there is a mass of large boulders one on top of another making it both a challenge to walk and an attraction for those seeking an adventure.
By looking carefully at the rocks you will notice “fish that have leapt out of the water” – an artistic manifestation created by artist Ivonna Kalita as her tribute to her native Liepāja.
